Blurb: Jaded and hurting from a recent breakup, Larry’s not exactly having the time of his life in Vegas for his best friend’s wedding. But his luck begins to change at the Love Me Tender Wedding Chapel, where The King not only marries his friends, but takes on the challenge of teaching Larry to Viva Las Vegas and enjoy some Burning Love.
Review: I got this story simply because I loved the title. “Heartbreak Hotel” is one of my favourite songs by Elvis, so I had to get it.
It is short, we don’t know much about Larry, just that he got dumped four months ago and is heartbroken. But of course, he has to attend his friends’ wedding. Those two are madly in love and if I had had to be around them a bit longer they probably would have gotten on my nerves. You know the typical smooching couple. At the wedding Larry meets Elvis who is determined to get him out of his funk. As it happens the King turns out to be a well-endowed stud indeed.
Larry was moping around a bit naturally, but once he is out with Elvis he quickly gets into the swing of things. The story has some really funny lines, something way too rare in romance. Often it’s all about angst, complications, problems of some sort or other, so to read a story which is pure fun and shows lots of humour is really refreshing.
A fast and fun read! I need to check out other stuff by D. G. Parker soon.
